BLACKFOOT, ID AUGUST 11, 2015: Wrapping up the 15th regular season of Professional Rock Crawling, Maxxis Tires W.E. Rock Eastern Series Round 3 begins at Arbuckle Offroad Park for a one day event Saturday August 15th, followed by the Bo Phillips Band live on stage Saturday night. On Sunday August 16th, the Dirt Riot Endurance Racing series will wrap up the Central Series, which has battles for titles in almost every class. Both events are spectator and family friendly with multiple viewing areas with trees for shade, plus vendors and food is available.
“This is a first time event at Arbuckle and we are really excited to have found the perfect location for both WERock and Dirt Riot. It’s harder than most people think to find this type of a location,” said Rich Klein, President and founder of W.E. Rock Events. “The solid granite slabs offer some extremely cool lines for the rock crawlers, on pretty much virgin rock. The granite will also offer the Dirt Riot drivers a challenge along with 2 river crossings and some technical trail sections! It’s going to be a great two days of competition, and for those not familiar, two extremely different types of offroad racing. One is slow and technical, and one is fast.”
The Professional Rock Crawling Series presented by Maxxis will start at 9am on Saturday August 15th. There are great spectator areas from all angles and trees for shade. The Sportsman Class is open to any offroad enthusiast in the area that would like to compete. There are minimal safety requirements to take on the courses. You can join the already registered CGYS Scott Angell, Jake Good and STT Frank Vonderheide among many others not pre-registered.
Dirt Riot Racing picks up the speed and puts race buggies, 4×4 trail jeeps, and UTVs on a track to complete as many laps as they can within their groups set amount of time on Sunday August 16th. The course includes massive granite rock formations, 2 river water crossings, tree lined technical trail sections and a hot pit. There is a viewing area just off the main hot pit where you can see both water crossings, big rock sections and some of the technical trails. Pre-registered in the Pro 4400 class is Bruso Motorsports Kyle Bruso, D&D Motorsports Doug Kahlstrom, Crawling Chaos Racing Carl Langerhans and Rowdy Racing Rowdy Trubenbach among others not already pre-registered.
